Highway Patrol Continues To Refine Holiday Stats

The Ohio State High­way Patrol was out in full force this past Labor Day week­end, and reports indi­cate a decrease in traf­fic fatal­i­ties. Eleven fatal crashes resulted in 11 deaths dur­ing the report­ing period of Fri­day, Sep­tem­ber 4 at 12 a.m. through Mon­day, Sep­tem­ber 7 at 11:59 p.m. This is one less crash and one less death than last year. In total, 723 motorists were arrested for OVI and 6,260 motorists received safety belt cita­tions. Troop­ers increased over­all con­tact by three per­cent in an effort to spread traf­fic safety mes­sages to as many motorists as pos­si­ble.
